Question Title

* 2. We recognise that NZFFA members have many different interests.  For the purposes of this survey, we are using three categories to describe the reason they are involved in forestry: 
  • Farming - people whose prime interest and business is in farming and who see trees as complementing their farming activities.
  • Passion - tree growers who have a fundamental interest in growing trees, alternative species, etc. 
  • Investing – tree growers whose primary interest is return on their investment in trees. 

If you had to choose ONE of these categories to describe your interests, which would you choose?
